Learn about new schools standards
Two policymakers involved in writing the Common Core State Standards will speak at the University of Rhode Island on Tuesday, Nov. 5, at 7:30 p.m. at Edwards Hall.
Susan Pimentel and Doug Sovde will discuss the new high-stakes test for mathematics and English that will replace the New England Common Assessment Program. Sovde will share sample items from the new test called the Partnership for the Assessment of College and Career Readiness. The standards and the new test will affect students in grades kindergarten through 12.
The new core standards will be consistent in every state.
